It’s The Year of the Fire Monkey

Yes, it’s the favorite holiday of pandas once again, the Chinese New Year and no one likes to celebrate it more than the panda kindergarten! This year we celebrate the Year of the Fire Monkey and once again we ask, “why is there no Year of the PANDA????” (And every year Mehitabel answers, “as far as I can tell, it’s ALWAYS the year of the panda around here. Hmmmph!”)

For a more factual report of the meaning of this year, visit Vicky Vladic’s blog for her report on The Year of the Fire Monkey and a delicious cuppycake recipe! I’ve done an illustrated version of this recipe which will be appearing on one of my new favorite websites, They Draw and Cook, which features illustrated recipes from artists around the world. Huzzah!

And here, with no further folderol, is the panda kindergarten’s tribute to The Year of the Fire Monkey!

Well, the FIRE part had Mehitabel a little worried, but...

Personally, I think pandas look quite dashing in the other kind of monkey suit! And as Bob says, at least nothing is on fire, like a few hearts ago with The Year of the Dragon celebration.

See you on Wednesday!

Be the Bear,

      I think white tie and tails looks really good on pandas! What’s the difference between one kind of monkey suit and another? :oD

    Bob looks so handsome with a bowtie.
    Only Pinky can rock a monkey suit and a tiara!
    Love both monkey suits. Just proves pandas can wear anything and still be adorable.
    Wishing everyone a fabulous Year of the Monkey (and Panda!)

      She is one of those pandas who look good in whatever outfit she chooses. Well, I guess all pandas look good in whatever.

    Indeed, Pinky is great with her disguise. But I love in these vignettes the smile of Bob T. (how he smiles) … and his formal attitude. I remember their attempts with the tea ceremony and the PandyKindy…

      Bob is ever hopeful and he does look splendid in a bow tie! Pinky looks good in everything she wears!
